“I am grateful for my father, who keeps me good and sweet. I am grateful for my mother, who keeps her own heart guarded and safe. I am grateful for my adviser, who keeps me protected. I am grateful for the Path, which keeps me pure. Ever after.”

Princess Aislynn has long dreamed about attending her Introduction Ball, about dancing with the handsome suitors her adviser has chosen for her, about meeting her true love and starting her happily ever after.

When the night of the ball finally arrives and Nerine Academy is awash with roses and royalty, Aislynn wants nothing more than to dance the night away, dutifully following the Path that has been laid out for her. She does not intend to stray.

But try as she might, Aislynn has never quite managed to control the magic that burns within her-magic brought on by wicked, terrible desires that threaten the Path she has vowed to take.

After all, it is wrong to want what you do not need. Isn’t it?

When I started reading Stray, it was slow from the beginning. You might see the need to have to read it twice to get the idea of what the author is writing about. You will read about the main character Princess Aislynn. She can't wait until the night of the ball that is coming up and to meet that handsome man that her advisor has chosen for her to marry or become his soul mate. Aislynn is the type of girl that really doesn't like following the rules like everybody else wants her to do. Inside she has all this magic that is burning inside her and she wants to be able to do what she wants to do.

When I was reading this book all I could think about was the TV show Grimm about fairies, paranormal and magic. I really am not into this but I did want to read the book to see about how this is one of the most anticipated books for October. Please take a chance and read this book if you love magic, fairies, and paranormal genre.
